Is There a Distinctly “Vancouver” Watch?
Shiva Reddy is ready to share her fave spots in Vancouver in advance of judging the inagural MIV awards.
As “Wine Boss” at Como Taperia, Shiva Reddy curates a wild mix of sherry, bubbly and beyond—but with stints on the wine teams at Boulevard, Royal Dinette and Juniper under her belt, too, she’s no stranger to the other fine bevs being served up in this city’s restaurant scene. All of which makes her the perfect person to sip, swirl and taste her way through our Drink entries for the inaugural Made in Vancouver Awards. She’s stepped into the role of our head judge for the category, and no batch of kombucha, vial of bitters or locally brewed gin will be too much for her keenly honed palette.As we countdown to the deadline for the MIV award entries, we asked Reddy to share some of her local picks.
